Five major roads in Nairobi will remain closed on Tuesday ahead of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s inauguration.
According to Nairobi police commander Japheth Koome, Mombasa road, Thika road and Uhuru highway will be marked as “red zones” (areas with heavy deployment of police officers) due to security protocols following the high number of diplomats who are expected to grace the event.
“Because of security protocol the aforementioned roads will be marked as red zones,” Koome said.
Other roads which will be closed for Kenyatta’s swearing-in ceremony are Wangari Maathai road (former forest road), and Museum Hill.
PRESIDENT UHURU’S EXTRAVAGANT INAUGURATION BUDGET
A section of Kenyans have also taken to social media to condemn the Sh 300 million the government is set to spend on president Uhuru Kenyatta’s inauguration ceremony saying that the amount is a mockery of the current state of the country.
Kuria Albert: millennials wondering where they’ll get jobs from and with the economy running at critical mass barely supporting the whole country 300 million is being used for a ceremony. It’s painful seeing the era we’ve grown up in
ZIARA KENYA Corp: Dear Mr. @PresidentKE @WilliamsRuto spending KSH. 300 Million for the Swearing Ceremony is the Greatest Insult to our ailing Economy n the People of Kenya. Tourism is on its Knees…please don’t let your 2nd Term legacy start on the wrong footing!! GOD BLESS KENYA! #JosephKinyua
